Inflammatory Markers in Intrauterine and Fetal Blood and Cerebrospinal Fluid Compartments Are Associated with Adverse Pulmonary and Neurologic Outcomes in Preterm Infants

Recent evidence strongly implicates the inflammatory response to intrauterine infection in the pathogenesis of neonatal brain and lung injury. We hypothesized that lung and brain injury in preterm infants occurs during a common developmental window of vulnerability as the result of an inflammatory response in different compartments. To determine whether… CONTINUE READING
